Creative “Animal Lace” Wall Sculptures

Young artists Linlin and Pierre-Yves Jacques have used 3D printing techniques to develop the wall sculptures out of white polyamide and gloss paint. Spectacular collection “Animal Lace” features wall sculptures in the shape of animal busts. By day, the strong white 3D shapes protrude out from the wall in a decorative display. By night, lights glimmer through the animal forms, and a dynamic energy radiates from the complex lace patterns in unexpected formations along the wall. Pierre-Yves says, “The process of creation with four hands and two minds is not that easy, but I think that’s something we like. We love to confront our ideas, we hope this allows us to give birth to surprising pieces of art.”

“The World Turns” Sculpture by Michael Parekowhai

New Zealand sculptor Michael Parekowhai’s installation titled The World Turns is an intriguing piece of work that features an enormous bronze statue of an elephant balancing on its head. Next to the 5-meter-tall structure, there is a tiny, almost undetectable, figure of a kuril (a rodent native to Australia, often referred to as a “water rat”) and a short distance away there is a chair installed for viewers to take a seat and reflect on the wondrous spectacle. In a statement, the museum says, “The World Turns reminds us that history is often recorded to highlight specific moments, but, as the world turns, there are many other stories – and these are central to our understanding of history.”
